It's not about how much plastic is in them (within reason, obviously. Apparently the straw+top to nitro top difference is 0-0.5g), it's that straws usually don't get recycled because of their size and shape and how the sorters work, whereas tops usually do. So even when people tried to recycle straws, they ended up in landfils anyways since the sorters don't catch them. Plastic tops however aren't a problem.
